ALBUM: "The Red Hills"
The Red Hills is a region of 7,100 acres of public land just south of the historic town of Chinese Camp in Tuolumne County. The natural serpentine in the area limits plants to species that are tolerant of such minerals. Included among the buckbrush and gray pine is a rich diversity of annual wildflowers that put on a showy display every spring. The endangered bald eagle is a winter resident of the area.
